Every year on August 26th, we celebrate the existence of our furry friends by dedicating a special day to a dog’s unconditional love for people. The day is known as International Dog Day. Dogs are considered man’s best friend and having one in the home is nothing short of a blessing.
In celebration of International Dog Day, here are the top 4 reasons why adopting a pet dog will make your life better.
Great Emotional Support
Without even trying, dogs offer us the best emotional support. Petting or petting a dog automatically fills our hearts with joy when we are feeling stressed or weighed down by life’s difficulties. The furry dogs running up to us, wagging their tails and licking our faces, lift our spirits instantly.
Dogs are known to be fierce protectors. When you and your family are in a deep sleep at night, the slightest noise will alert the dogs and sound the alarm. These furry pets are known for their blind allegiance to their owners. If you have a dog in your home, you can be sure that he will protect you from harm at the cost of his life.
It Helps Us Stay Active
If you have a dog at home, you will need to take care of the dog, wash it once a week, walk it, and maybe even play litter and carry it. These activities force you to stay alert and stay active. This in turn keeps you fit and healthy on the road and increases your well-being.
Another important aspect that our furry friends help us with is socialization. Not leaving the house and staying there can leave us vulnerable to loneliness and depression, which can prove fatal in the long run. However, service dogs make an effort to pull us out of the confines of our homes to walk or run with them, and to some extent help us interact with many people outside.
